For this application:

You will need to have two (2) documents created and ready to submit.

Hint: Do not write a book.
The goal of a resume and cover letter is to land an interview.
In the interview, you have the opportunity to go more in depth.

1. Resume in a standard format, emphasizing important CAP items.
You may include relevant non-CAP experiences/education, especially if you are newer to CAP.
We recommend you create your resume using the Technical Document information in CAPP 60-32 Staff Duty Analysis.

Use a professional template of your choice.
If this is your first time applying and you’ve never created a resume before, there are many templates available in Microsoft Word and Google Docs. Here’s a sample resume.
However, you should customize your resume to fit your own experiences and beliefs that make you an ideal candidate.

Do not submit a resume in memorandum format.
That format is unacceptable and may result in your not being offered an interview slot.

2. Letter of Interest/Cover Letter

This is your chance to use your own words to make you stand out.
Tell me why you are awesome, why you are a great fit for staff, why you want to serve, what you’ll get out of it, how you’ll help others – in short, why you should get an interview.

Keep it to a single page, in your choice of format.
I’m not going to tell you what you “have to say” – everyone is an individual.
You can read job descriptions and if you’ve been active, you know a bit from observation what our operation is like.
You also have the opportunity to ask questions now in advance of the application window opening.

If you need some ideas of what you could include, see these below.

  • Why you want to serve on cadet staff
  • What skills do you hope to use as a staff member
  • What skills do you want to build during your staff term
  • What qualities you have that make you a great team member
  • What role you want to play in Anoka’s goals in the next term
  • Any other aspects, qualities and/or skills about you that you think important for the evaluating team to know at the time of application
